He never followed Nole until we met. Then all of the sudden he starts telling me stuff like "I am starting to be worried with Djokovic's rakings" when Nole was about to lose the #4 and stuuf like that.

I kind of :explode:ed when he said that. I told him to leave Nole alone he was my thing not his. I was quite mean, but I was kind of getting crazy. For 2 years Nole has been my thing and just because we started dating he invades my very own personal space?

He is trying to please you and share part of your life by showing an interest in "your" things to show you that he cares - but you want to keep your independance.......difficult situation but one that comes in every relationship at one stage or other I think.

Don't think you'd really like him cheering for Nole's opponents though - it can be VERY annoying :mad: Only time Alex hasn't done it recently is in Madrid - I think even he realised that I was so devastated with that match, he felt too sorry for me to tease :awww:

A sybarite is a general term for describing one fond of pleasure and luxury. It may also refer to:

A native of the ancient Italian city of Sybaris
Sybarite (musician), the alias of New York electronic musician Xian Hawkins
The Sybarites Ladies drinking and dining society of Sidney Sussex College, Cambridge
Sybarite (fashion doll), a 16" doll created by London artists Desmond Lingard and Charles Fegen in 2005.

Hi Rose :D I have only seen him in Cinci 2005 and 2007 but I was impressed with his work ethic and yes he is very sweet and shy for the most part.

Hi Sue :wavey: Must admit don't think I've ever met or heard of anyone who doesn't like Cilic :shrug: Not only a very talented player - and a very handsome one too :hearts: but always well-behaved and sporting on court, and seems ike a genuinely nice guy :inlove:

And funny :lol: He was checking out postcards at 10pm in the hotel lobby in Munich, making jokes with the guy who sells them and with his family. It was so cute to see.

:lol: Well I already have a "bad" reputation with thread starting - I'm the one that started Wimbledon 2008 remember :o So I have broad shoulders and can take it. You may have beginner's luck though :D

And as for the tennis - I'm with you. I have Andykins v Cilic on TV right now, but despite liking Marin, I am also bored, and busy posting here and washing my net curtains (how awfully suburban of me :o ) at the same time. As you say - being glued to a TV/live scoreboard, staying up all hours, or staying in on a beautiful sunny day like today, are sacrifices I can only make for Nole (and possibly Janko) - no one else.

Good luck with the thread :D

Where are you in Portugal btw? A place I want to visit one day:yeah:

I was born in Coimbra where I lived for 4 years while my parents were finishing uni, then we all moved to Chaves (in the norh, 5 minutes from Spain). Last september I came bact to Coimbra to study - I am at medical school. My parents and sister still live in Chaves. :)

Well given that US hard courts are his best surface, he's a bloody good bet. And I think he trumps Nole in mental toughness now, unpalatable though that may be for us to hear :shrug:

Admittedly, if Rafa is on for the calendar GS by then he may prove juggernaut-like.

So you think Nole will never beat him again on HC? :tape: Andy doesn't stand for Nole as rafa starnds for Roger, Herdwick. :nerner:

yes, medical school is a lot different here in portugal. Right after we finish hight school we need to choose a career. :shrug: don't know if its better or worse, but that the it has always worked here in Portugal.

In my case, I guess it's good, because by the age of 24 I'll have finished the first 6 years, and I start working/earning immediately, Still have 5-7 years of studying though, once I choose my speciality. ;)

:worship: Indeed - won't EVER do it - not even for Novak - hateful way to waste a day sitting on a cold, wet pavement, to pay extortianate amounts of money for people you can see more closely and more cheaply at RG or Queens or almost anywhere else. Sorry - Wimbledon hater here - can't deny :o

We Brits should have more holidays!

I understand why you find queuing annoying and yes I much prefer RG to Wimbledon myself (I can actually choose when I want to be at RG and which showcourt :D). I've never done it overnight, that's for sure and never in the rain either. Luckily in the past, I've been fortunate to have other ways to be able to attend without queuing but no so much anymore. :awww: It's definitely an advantage at Wimbledon to know people. ;)

So Belgians also have more holidays than us poor Brits :sad:



You guys are the land of Shakespeare, Harry Potter and Andy Murray. Why do you need hollidays anyway? You don't need them!:shrug: You celebrate patriotism and your country everyday! :rolls:

I bet everyone is gone. :bigcry:

I'm with you on that - Wimbledon is all about WHO you now, not what you know :shrug: I'm kind of lucky in that I do know some people who can sometimes get me free tickets, and obviously if I get those, then I go, because it's live tennis and it's relatively local so would be stupid to turn down the opporunity - but that's as far as it goes :o I did the overnight thing a few times when I was at school and Uni, and guess it was an experience :shrug: But as I get older I like my comforts - or at least a clean, comfy bed and a hot shower in the morning - and the queueing thing just doesn't do it for me.

:nerner: Now be careful Miss Sybarite - I am English, and England is most definitely NOT the land of Andy Murray :spit: That is an insult to all concerned. I'm sure would be ost offended to be called Engish :lol:

And not quite gone- but very soon now - have to work tomorrow.

I'd love to know about that dream. :devil: But I am sure you'll be selfish and keep it for yourself only. :awww:

Sleep well :hug:

:wavey: Rose

NBC is showing Sharapova serving for the match. Only have time to show the last 2 games. :awww:

And the screaming is killing me. But there's a very loud Chinese guy cheering for Li.

And I am not really sure whether Maria will help women tennis, the court was more than half empty with audience. And the noisiest crowd was the Chinese fans.
